Mike Patterson played next to Cullen Jenkins when the two were Eagles. Now they may be doing it for the Giants.

Patterson, a defensive tackle who was cut earlier this offseason by Philadelphia, is expected to visit with the Giants Tuesday and could sign as a free agent. If he does he would join Jenkins, also a defensive tackle, who signed a three-year, $8 million deal with the Giants last month.

The Giants are also hosting visits from RB Tim Hightower, WR Anthony Armstrong and DE Eric Norwood. The Giants had planned to host QB Pat White this week as well but he cancelled and is expected to sign with the Redskins.
